Skylon Park is a place where leading businesses are enabled and inspired to be the best they can be and their people can live life to the full.
Over £25m has been invested over recent years providing new access roads, remediating brownfield sites, and bringing all the necessary services to the plots. Land is available now for immediate development and occupation, with flexible plots for sale allowing you to develop accommodation which best suits your business requirements.
Planning is, in principle, already approved for the majority of investors through the Hereford Enterprise Zone Local Development Order (LDO), which allows us to streamline the process and shorten timescales.
The entire planning process is free of charge, from pre-application advice to applications and amendments, and decisions have to be given within 4 weeks. All development covered by the LDO will also be exempt from Section 106 obligations and future Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) requirements.Planning resources
